There are many amazing fashion moments on America’s new favorite show Empire. Lucious’ scarves, Cookie’s furs, Jamal’s hats—but chief among them is Naomi Campbell’s Camilla and her glitzy, glamorous looks.
Costume designer Rita McGhee has definitely discussed the inspiration behind Cookie’s looks, but imagine my surprise when Naomi Campbell revealed to Vogue that she picked Camilla’s entire Empire wardrobe herself!
Another gem she dropped about her role on the hit TV show? It may not have happened without Diane von Furstenberg’s help. “I’ve known Lee [Daniels] for a long time, but when he asked me to play the role, I wasn’t sure,” says Campbell. “I’d kind of given up on acting.” The designer (and fairy godmother of advice, clearly) told the model to give it one more try, go out there and own it!
